AppArt School – How to Use the Apple Watch for Mobile Photography

The Apple Watch is an ingenious product and it’s not just great for fitness but did you know you can also use it to support your mobile photography. We’ll show you how:

The Apple Watch can be used as a remote control for your iPhone camera, allowing you to take photos and videos from a distance.

Here are the steps to use your Apple Watch for photography:

  1. Make sure your iPhone is unlocked and the Camera app is open.
  2. Launch the Camera app on your Apple Watch.
  3. The Apple Watch camera app will show a live preview of your iPhone camera.
  4. Tap the Shutter button to take a photo or start/stop recording a video.
  5. You can also use the Digital Crown to zoom in and out while taking a photo or video.
  6. To change the camera mode, tap the icon in the lower-left corner of the app and swipe left or right to select the desired mode.
  7. You can also switch between the front and rear cameras by tapping the icon in the lower-right corner of the app.

Keep in mind that the Apple Watch camera app only works when your iPhone is nearby, and you may need to adjust the camera settings on your iPhone to get the best results.
